MGMT / Re: A Good Sadness
« on: September 22, 2013, 03:55:44 PM »
the title a good sadness is i think my fav mgmt song title. sadness can be good or bad. it's kinda like the feeling i get (very often) of crying at happy things. sad can be happy. happy tears. being sad is a part of life and it's not always bad or depressing it can be rejuvinating and necessary and cathartic. sad things are often beautiful. very cool song title.

i know i read it too and really disliked it. the fact that they only called it "confusing and confused" in this review though makes me think they might possibly regret saying all the bad stuff in time. didnt they love the album teaser? i forget if they did.

Seriously Spin, make your bloody mind up

MGMT's self-titled third LP may be "a confused, confusing album," but it's not without its charms. "Cool Song No. 2" is a brooding psychedelic rumbler that merges Brian Eno exploration with Animal Collective experimentation to pretty excellent results. And that track now has a fantastic video to go with starring none other than Michael K. Williams, famous for such gruff but grounded characters as Omar Little (The Wire) and Chalky White (Boardwalk Empire). In director Isaiah Seret's work above, the man plays "the Plant Hunter," who appears to be tasked with gathering unusual flora with the goal of converting the material into illegal drugs. But the very well-dressed and very violent Williams has his own agenda, and it's quickly clear that he's gone rogue either for revenge or a good cause.

I think we have a classic case of the "grower" on our hands! Just wait until their praising every single one of their singles! Spin will come around. Confusion doesn't mean it's bad, just means they didnt get it at first.

anyone else have the corrupted file problem?

i really want to watch the optimizer :(

I have to say, i really hate that it's a one time download. My computer is an asshole and it prbably wont work the first time for me either. Why make it a one time it's not like you had to pay for it. I'm upset about this, Management.

You know, I actually just now read the Pitchfork review, and I don't think it's terrible.  He clearly listened to the album.  I guess the thing that gets to me is how many people don't think they're capable of writing another TTP.  I swear there's part of me that wishes Ben and Andrew would vomit up an EP of radio gold just to silence the naysayers.  I resent the haters for making me feel that way.

Also, once again, I know we have a lot of guests and new members and I want to direct you to our awesome resources in the Internets section.

Your Blood is all around you now http://mgmtforum.com/index.php?topic=7190.0 is where you can find (and please post) print articles and reviews.

We Love You In Glacial Ways http://mgmtforum.com/index.php?topic=7189.0 is where we archive video interviews.

If you haven't checked out the Feature Article from new mag Electric Beats, it's a must read and can be found in the Your Blood thread.  It's my favorite MGMT article date.  It's packed with great insight.  It also reveals that Astro-Mancy is Ben's fave off of the album  ;)


I also liked the review, and like many reviews, think the words dont match up to the rating it's given. the way he talks of it makes it sound like more than a 6.2.

but the main thing i enjoyed about the article was the very important point he touched on about the singles - that their hti singles Electric Feel and TTP were probably the strangest pop hits to come out recently, they're not normal pop songs by any means, which makes their direction make a lot more sense and shouldnt really be puzzling to anyone. every musician probably that's ever lived started out with simpler songs and if they've grown at all, mature and make more complex music. for some reason im being reminded of the beach boys and brian wilson a lot with thie mgmt record, and even the last one. the beach boys made all these surf poppy squeaky clean hits, then made pet sounds and smile which were not well recieved and because the backlash was so extreme, from his bandmates especially, smile was abandoned into the eclectic canon of unfinished masterpieces.... they're of course not the only band to start out simpe and trangress to mroe complex arrangements and genres, the pitchfork article mentions beck and radiohead as others in this category of having hits that made them able to make other weirder music. but it's this freedom that allows obscure bands who had hit songs make them household names, to make other weirder and more interesting music to reach a wider fanbase then say a small band doing equally weird things on a small label. it's cool that mgmt has this opportunity and reach, and one day i think they'll go down the same road as the brian wilsons <3 and the radioheads and the becks of the experimental music world =) i know this argument has been hashed out millions of times but i like that the pitchfork reviewer gave it a fresh perspective with some comments he made.
